To art or not. I have not been here for awhile. Why, because I lost my passion to create, to be creative. This last year I have been inspired again because of life’s moments.
Life happens even when your not looking. The events that have taken place in my life have aroused why I paint. Family, friends and living this is it all in a hand bag.
Since I was very young I have been painting people. In high school my pages were covered in all of my fellow students around me. Got me me in more trouble more than once, but I’m a bit strong headed.
Recently in passing it was mentioned that portraits do not sell. Although I know this, am I painting to sell or do I paint to portray moments in life we all have. Have to say this has put my painting on hold for three weeks, not five years.
The question is can I paint a landscape, a still life, a street scene? I ask you to visit lorettasecord.com I am currently revising this website as it is not user friendly but it gives you an idea. I believe the answer is there.
I paint portraits, people because to me the moments I capture can touch everyone of us. Painting people I know invites passion into my work.
Paint what inspires you. I hope that’s why we create!
